I am selling/trading a brand new (less than one week old and spotless less than 1 hour of playtime) special edition Blackstar HT40 Mark II Special Edition 49 watt tube amp.

They made a limited number of these Special Edition Cream colored amps and after they go they are gone so it's a collectors amp, as much as a 40 watt tube amp can be a collectors item :)

This amp is a beast of tone and the rare and coveted cream white cover and Celestion speaker included with the special edition And all the additional features loaded on the Mark II.

It's just a little too much for me. It sounds amazing and there are zero issues but it's too big for me gain wise even though the clean has been remodeled and it sounds great.

New these go for 800$ and I bought it as-is from a music store going out of business in Nashville or I would return it so it's priced to move.

I am open to trades for tube amps, 20 watts or more. Particularly interested in Fender, Ampeg, egnater, orange, delta blues and vox but will consider whatever you got! Will consider 15 watt or Peavey classic if you have some sweet sweet pedals to throw in. Of those a good reverb, polyphonic shifters like EHX Pitchfork, subnup, and soul pog, transparent overdrives, synthesizer modulators for guitar pedals, Compressor, delay, and I'll entertain whatever you may have :)

Here's what Sweetwater says about the mark II HT40:

Powerful, Versatile, and Better Than Ever

Take the stage with Blackstar's versatile HT Club 40 MK II, and you'll have all the tones you need. The HT Club 40 MK II's updated clean channel sings with a truly boutique tone. Kick in the overdrive channel, and you're able to conjure inspiring British edge-of-breakup grit to tight and punchy American high gain, thanks to Blackstar's Infinite Shape Feature (ISF). And around back, you'll find two different textures of reverb and a speaker-emulated output that makes direct recording easier than ever.

When Blackstar hit the drawing board for their HT Club 40 MK II, not only did they reference their own amps' popular tones, but they wanted to match or beat the tones of electric guitar amplifiers costing up to five times more. Take it from the guitarists at Sweetwater, they nailed it. The clean channel has a clarity and note definition that is rare on amps in the MK II's price range. Move over to the gain channel, and you'll take note of how great the sound is throughout the whole range of overdrive. The original HT Club 40 is an incredibly popular amp. With the MK II, they beat it.

The Blackstar HT Club 40 MK II is packed with a massive variety of tube tone, by virtue of Blackstar's Infinite Shape Feature (ISF). This exclusive feature shifts the EQ curves of the amplifier's Bass, Middle, and Treble controls. When turned fully counterclockwise, you'll lend an American characteristic to your voice with a tight bottom end and aggressive middle. Turned all the way to the right, you'll enjoy more of a British vibe. Beyond that, four different operating modes can be accessed via a pair of Voice switches, unleashing both vintage and modern voicings for each channel.

he tone of the HT Club 40 MK II is well worth the price of admission. But Blackstar knows what players want. And they loaded this already great-sounding all-tube combo with enough features to ensure it quickly becomes your go-to gigging and recording amp. The revoiced reverb offers more depth and detail than ever before. Nailing cranked tones at appropriate volume levels is easy thanks to the onboard power reduction circuit. Beyond that, the emulated line-out and USB audio output will make you your sound engineer's best friend.
